The Toledo Federation of Art Societies welcomes 
you to our 69th Annual Exhibition. This show has 
grown in diversity, quality and importance over 
the years, and has become one of the outstanding 
cultural events in this area. 

We would like to express our appreciation to the 
many artists who submitted their work for con- 
sideration. The work we show was selected by a 
distinguished panel of nationally known jurors, 
who were chosen by the sixteen member groups 
of the Federation. 

Special recognition is due to The Toledo Museum 
of Art. Over the years they have graciously pro- 
vided the space for the exhibition, as well as staff 
time, a meeting room, and storage for the pieces 
in our permanent collection not out on loan. We 
would like thank Mr. Roger Mandle, Director, and 
Mr. Steve Frushour and the Museum staff for the 
fine installation of the show. We also wish to 
thank Mr. Guy-Michael B. Davis for his capable 
work as Finance Chairman, and, not least, our 


General Awards are selected by the jury on the basis 
of quality regardless of style or medium. The jury is 
authorized to give an award of $750 for Best of 
Show, five First Awards of $250, five Second Awards 
of $175, and five Third Awards of $100. The jury 
also presents the Israel Abramofsky Award of the 
Temple-Congregation Shomer Emunim for $500 for 
an outstanding entry in any medium, the Molly 
Morpeth Canaday Award of $350 for an outstanding 
painting, the Roulet Medal for excellence in painting, 
graphics or sculpture, and the Craft Club of Toledo 
Gold Medal for excellence in crafts. 

The Toledo Friends of Photography Award for Ex- 
cellence in Photography, a cash prize of $100, is 
given to the photographer whose work is judged the 
most meritorious. The Toledo Area Glass Guild 
awarded $125 for excellence in glass art to celebrate 
the 25th year of studio glass in America. The Arts 

many friends and patrons. 

In 1960 the Federation inaugurated the Special 
Annual Award, a certificate to be presented at the 
opening of the Toledo Area Artists Exhibition. The 
person so honored, in the opinion of the commit- 
tee, has done the most for the arts in Toledo. Last 
year's recipient was our former president, Nelson 
Thai. This year, I am pleased to announce, the 
award has been given to Schuyler Yates. 

It has been a privilege to serve as President of the 
Federation, a difficult job made easier by the 
willing and very competent help of the officers, 
committee chairmen and delegates. 

We hope you will find viewing this year's exhibi- 
tion a stimulating and enjoyable experience.
